A dark ruby amber with perhaps a bit of haze
Smell is very bready and sweet.
Taste is bready and simultaneously smokey with a little bit of hops and coffee/cocao-like flavor.
Easy to drink yet interesting. A solid brew

L. Caramely amber color with a big white head which takes its sweet time descending.
S. Caramel and toffee, sweet dark bread, earthy, grassy, figs. Nice aroma.
T. Caramel maltiness, sweet dark bread, some peppery spice, light molasses, sweetness drops right off toward the end for a grassy leafy bitterness with a bit of caramel.
F. Medium body and carbonation. Dry in the end.
O. Very nice. Satisfying amount of flavor, a malty beer with a super balanced finish. I'd do it again. Cheers!

L — Pours an ever so slightly hazy brownish amber body with a miniscule off-white head produced with aerated pour. Minimal retention or lacing
S — Honey, caramel, raisin bread, dark fruit
T — Brown bread, molasses, toffee, brown sugar, grassy hop
F — Quite thin and watery. Medium- mouthfeel, medium carb. Definitely flies off the palate too fast
O — Good middle-of-the-road example of an amber ale. Fairly priced and quite drinkable

A wonderful slightly creamy honey ale. Carmel notes and a hint of orange. This is what I like to call a relaxed beer not to filling and hits the spot. A foggyesque medium amber. A 1+in head goes away quickly on a heavy pour. Fills full bodied and is a overall wonderful beer will buy again for sure.

A: Poured a one finger head, burnt orange in color, nice lacing

S: Wheaty, malty, honey, slight nuttiness, maybe pine nuts.

F: Medium mouth-feel

T: A good mix of honey, malt and hops, but then the wheaty malts completely take over and linger for quite some time. Alcohol is present, but is largely hidden well.

O: Poured from a can. Easy to drink, but perhaps too malty. Single note beer, but it's a good note.
